How long do you count for cleaning a room? I find 30 minutes very short to get good quality cleaning?
Hi @CarmenH I don’t think there is a hard and fast rule that a room must be cleaned within 30 minutes etc. it depends upon a lot of factors like the size or the room, facilities, service standard, amenities etc.
What I recommend is to find the sweet spot for the room cleaning time with one of your best room attendant. The most effective room cleaning should follow a logical progression from actually entering the guest room to the final check and departure.
Have you prepared a task list for the room attendants already? this would be a reference to make sure all required cleaning task is completed by the attendant and note down the time taken.
Thank you again!
I actually need to assess cost for a project feasibility study, I think I will take an average for now and yes I will definitely work on establishing a task list.
@CarmenH here is a sample task list for room attendants.
@CarmenH 30 mins is the standard room cleaning time. usually, 15 rooms are assigned for a shift for one room attendant. 15 x 30 mins = 450 mins , which is 7 hr 30 mins theoretically. 1 hr break time.
for standard room cleaning.
15 rooms are for 9 hr shift, including break/briefing preparing reports etc.
13 rooms are for 8 hr shift.
time will vary depending on the category, like suite rooms, deluxe, presidential suite etc. takes 45 mins to 1 hr.
This is regular cleaning time.
Deep cleaning time is more…
Thank you Ronan!
Definitely what I experienced in the Uk to
